Samsung Galaxy S8 Breaks iPhone’s AnTuTu Benchmark Test Record
A video showing the Samsung Galaxy S8 breaking the record for the AnTuTu benchmark test has surfaced. The Galaxy S8 registered a score of 205,284 which is far better than the previous record of 181,807 set by Apple's iPhone 7 Plus.
The Galaxy S8 overtook an impressive line-up of smartphones led by the iPhone 7 Plus and the iPhone 7 which garnered a score of 173,575 thus falling to third place. Falling behind Samsung Galaxy S8 among the best-performing Android handsets in the AnTuTu benchmark site is the OnePlus 3T with a score of 162,423., The record-setting performance of the Galaxy S8, with model number SM-G950, in the AnTuTu benchmark test may be attributed to the flagship smartphone's CPU. The highly anticipated device will come with Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 processor.
This new rumor follows last week's leaked Geekbench 4 results in which the Galaxy S8, as well as the Galaxy S8 Plus, got better scores than the iPhone 7 in terms of multi-core performance. The Samsung handset was equipped with the Exynos 8895. As IBTimes mentioned, the Galaxy S8 will be powered by Qualcomm's 10nm Snapdragon 835 processor. In comparison, the OnePlus 3T is powered by a 14nm technology-based Snapdragon 821. This simply means that the Galaxy S8's 10nm processors will provide more power and improved battery life as compared to the 3T's 14nm processors.
It is expected that most if not all flagship smartphones that will be released in 2017 will come with 10nm chips. In fact, rival Apple has indicated before that its production of the 10nm chips is on track indicating that the iPhone 8 will be released this year.
BGR noted that the AnTuTu benchmark test result is not a clear and complete indication of a device's performance. The true test comes after the device has been released and used by many. However, BGR acknowledged that the achievement was "quite remarkable" and that it is a sign that the Samsung Galaxy S8, particularly its Qualcomm and Exynos chips, will outperform other existing handsets.
